Yep, price is correct.   :(

EE upped their prices for case purchases to $79.99, which works out to about $6.75 each.  Target and Wal-Mart will more than likely keep the $7 price point until Ep3 figures or until someone lowers them.

Remember, the early Saga 2004/OTC figures started at $5.99 in the Target computers, but eventually dropped to $4.99 when Wal-Mart droped their prices.

I won't be surprised if the price comes down to $5.99 eventually, but methinks we've seen the last of the $5 figure price-point.

Jeff

edit: cleaned up my thoughts a bit

The case assortment for the Episode 3 Preview wave...

SW E3 BASIC FIGURE ASST W3R1
Case Assortment: 85172000B
4x Figure #1 - 85362
4x Figure #2 - 85365
2x Figure #3 - 85363
2x Figure #4 - 85361

So, the question is, who matches up with who?

I'll guess 4x Greivous, 4x Wookie, 2x Droid, 2x Tion Meddon.

Dear Hasbro,

Since you seem intent on contantly re-releasing this action figure, I thought I'd help you by listing all the potential new ways that you could continue to milk this figure for all that it's worth (because obviously, re-using this mold at least 7 times isn't enough for you).

1. Cantina Showdown 2-pack - Cantina Han vs. Cantina Greedo w/Cantina Bar "booth" Section
2. Cantina Apology 2-pack - Cantina Han & Wuher w/ U-shaped Bar End Section
3. Cantina Drinks 2-pack - Cantina Han with "Jenny" (Delete Scene) w/Cantina Wall Section
4. Cantina Booth 2-pack - Cantina Han & Dejarik Chewie and Cantina Bar "Booth" Section
5. Unfinished Scene 2-pack - Cantina Han with human "Jabba" fat dude

OR, if you just need some help with the names you can give him as you constantly re-card him...
6. Han Solo (Hangar 94 Escape)
7. Han Solo (Final Greedo Duel)
8. Han Solo (Showdown at Chalmun's)
9. Han Solo (Kessel Run Pilot)
10. Han Solo (I Didn't Shoot First)
11. Han Solo (Smuggler Pilot)
12. Han Solo (Chewbacca's Friend)
13. Han Solo (Milennium Falcon Pilot)
14. Han Solo (Silver 30th Anniversary Edition)
15. Han Solo (Imperial Academy Drop-Out) - EU!
16. Han Solo (Will Work for Credits)
17. Han Solo (Maybe I did Shoot First?)
18. Han Solo (Mos Eisley Encounter)
19. Han Solo (In Debt to Jabba)
20. Han Solo (Ship for Hire)
 
Your Pal,
Jeff

From the EE site:

Description: 
Star Wars - Post Original Trilogy Collection 3 3/4 inch Basic Action Figure Assortment Wave 2. Includes all-new vintage-style packaging that resembles the original line of Kenner Star Wars action figures. These are NOT in Original Trilogy Collection packaging. All figures are in new "Post" Original Trilogy Collection packaging. Contains 12 individually packaged action figures including 2x Feltipern Trevagg (NEW), 2x Myo (NEW), 2x Dannik Jerriko (NEW), 1x Sandtrooper - Tatooine Search (Older figure, slightly repainted, new packaging), 1x Stormtrooper - Death Star Attack (Same figure as OTC #16, but with new packaging), 1x Scout Trooper - Endor Raid (Same figure as OTC #11, but with new packaging), 1x Han Solo - Mos Eisley Escape (Same figure as OTC #7, but with new packaging), 1x Chewbacca - Hoth Escape (Same figure as OTC #8, but with new packaging), and 1x Yoda - Dagobah Training (Same figure as OTC #2, but with new packaging). (Subject to change).


So... they can afford to crank out new carded versions for 2005 (we, the carded collectors, salute you Hasbro  ::)) but they are still giving us re-hashed re-hashes???  If you are going to take the time to draw up new cards and everything, why not at least pick "new" older figures to rehash?

I'd understand if they were straight re-releases of the OTC versions, and I even understand Yoda because he's relatively new figure, BUT giving us yet ANOTHER version of that dang Cantina Han Solo blows.   >:( 

Would it have been SOOOOOO hard to do Bespin Arrival Han Solo?  Or how about Hoth Escape Han to go with Hoth Escape Chewie!  Cantina Han is now hands down the winner of the re-release contest:

1) - Commtech
2) - 2004 Saga "gold stripe card"
3) - 2004 Hall of Fame
4) - OTC
5) - Wal-Mart C-3PO Carry Case
6) - Sam's Club Falcon
7) - 2005 Star Wars card
8?) - Target Figure w/Cup wave 2

Yet another missed opportunity.  I'd have gone with:

1x Han Solo - Mos Eisley Escape Bespin Arrival (using the PotJ Bespin Han)
1x Chewbacca - Hoth Escape Bespin Escape (using Saga Cloud City Chewie)

At least Hasbro kinda seems to be listening by getting some army builders in this case...  :-\

Yeah, at least Pedro kept his team in it and the Sox had their chances...
after watching Schill pitch game 1,  I REALLY hope that Johan gets that CY.

It's funny how well the Yankees can "play when they want to play".  Watching these two games leads me to believe that either they did not take the Twins seriously, or, they get totally hyped up for these Sox games.

Jeff phoned in his pick due to some technical difficulties

Damn computers... a quick trip to Radio Shack and I'm back though (any PC repair under $50 is a good one).

For some reason I thought we saw a glimpse of him in GH's Comic-Con coverage, just during Hasbro's presentation (on the screen), not the actual figure.

Good Memory, Brian!

SDCC brings us news of MORE GH figures...

Luke (Jedi) & Gamorrean Guard 2-pack
Lando (Skiff) and Nikto (Skiff) 2-pack
Stormtroopers 2-pack
Jawa and Tusken Raider 2-pack.

GalacticHunter.com a mock-up photo up...

GH had the mock-ups of the Tatooine wave Gamorrean/Luke and Skiff Guards 2-packs, then Jawa and Tusken made their first appearance in the Insider last month...
